Dr. Rao did an extraordinary job as not only a doctor but a person as well. She listened to my concerns and explained the reasons for my problems and where I could go from there. From the moment she walked into the room till the moment she left I was very happy with my experience and will be coming back.

  Overall Patient Rating - January 2020
Dr Rao clearly took interest in my concerns, but had a gameplan of what she wanted to do on our first meeting and made sure to keep the appointment rolling. She described here decisions to me thoroughly, what she cared about and why, also what she didn't care about. My only comment is that she calls me by my middle name instead of my first name, which is a bit weird but since my first name is weird I'm used to rolling with it. She's great.

Too sensitive & when I ask about medication or her feedback she said she didn't think that we were compatible and that I may want to seek out others who work there. I explained that I have many allergies to medications and since I was new to the clinic I was trying to inform her about my health. She seemed to calm down a bit.
  Overall Patient Rating - November 2019
Dr. Rao seemed frustrated and impatient with me. I didn't feel like she was really listening to me or cared about my health concerns. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Rao because her profile stated she specializes in geriatric care. I'm 69 and was hoping she would help me to understand my age-related health concerns. Her temperament did not reflect someone who was understanding or compassionate for an elderly person. I won't be establishing care with her.
